Greenbone Vulnerability Manager

GitHub releases Code Documentation Coverage CircleCI

The Greenbone Vulnerability Manager is the central management service between security scanners and the user clients.

It manages the storage of any vulnerability management configurations and of the scan results. Access to data, control commands and workflows is offered via the XML-based Greenbone Management Protocol (GMP). The primary scanner OpenVAS Scanner is controlled directly via protocol OTP while any other remote scanner is coupled with the Open Scanner Protocol (OSP).

Installation and Usage

This module can be configured, built and installed with following commands:

cmake .
make install

For detailed installation requirements and instructions, please see the file INSTALL.md. The file also contains instructions for setting up gvmd and for connecting gvmd to vulnerability scanners and to the GSA web interface.

In case everything was installed using the defaults, then starting the manager daemon can be done with this simple command:

gvmd

To see all available command line options of gvmd enter this command:

gvmd --help

If you are not familiar or comfortable building from source code, we recommend that you use the Greenbone Community Edition, a prepared virtual machine with a readily available setup. Information regarding the virtual machine is available at https://www.greenbone.net/en/community-edition/.

Support

For any question on the usage of gvmd please use the Greenbone Community Portal. If you found a problem with the software, please create an issue on GitHub. If you are a Greenbone customer you may alternatively or additionally forward your issue to the Greenbone Support Portal.
